Synopsis
High pressure lingers over our region through early next week.

Below normal temperatures late this week will trend to above
normal temperatures over this weekend and early next week. A
cold front brings the next chance of showers early next week.

Distant hurricane humberto will bring high surf and dangerous
rip currents late this week, which should peak on Friday.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
945 am update...

high pres overhead will bring abundant sunshine and light N ne
winds with sea breezes developing along east coastal ma. 12z
soundings tell the story with very dry air throughout the column
and pwats near 0.25". Temperatures will remain below normal,
generally mid 60s to near 70, but cooler along the immediate
coast.

East-southeast swell from hurricane humberto will continue to
impact the coastline of southern new england. Rough surf and
dangerous rip currents will affect ocean-exposed beaches.

Swimming is not recommended, nor is walking out on low-lying
piers or jetties. High surf advisories will continue.

Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Friday
Dry weather continues through Friday. Swell from humberto will
also continue the threat for rough surf and dangerous rip currents.

With warming conditions Friday, will continue the high surf advisory
through much of Friday along ocean-exposed portions of the coast.

Long term Friday night through Wednesday
* highlights...

- lingering high surf, dangerous rip currents Saturday
- warm weekend, anticipating fantastic weather
- mild days, cool nights the following week
- two shots at wet weather around Monday night and Thursday night
* overview...

biggest concern: weekend lingering swell from humberto during which
the weather will be fantastic and beaches unguarded. High surf and
dangerous rip currents pose a threat to life, especially Saturday
during which beach hazard statements will likely be needed. Those
interested in observing the surf should do so from a safe distance.

Swimming is not recommended.

Otherwise: mostly mild, dry long-range forecast. Continued ensemble-
weighted +wpo +epo -pna +ao +nao teleconnections with a phase 8 to 1
mjo. Signals pointing towards warmer than average E CONUS conditions
ahead of preferred W CONUS troughing. But there's some hope we will
see some rain that'll wash out all the airborne allergens. Upstream
n pacific pattern amplifying, buckling, potentially cutting off w
conus troughing, energy cascades E along with continental-tropical
airmasses. So long as N atlantic higher heights do not suppress the
environment given an active tropical pattern and subsequent latent
heat release, we could see some decent shots of much needed rain,
the first around Monday night with a second around Thursday night.

Associated mid-level disturbances and accompanying jet dynamics in
concert with sweeping cold fronts, while specifics remain uncertain
far out in time, any rainfall is welcoming.

Aside from the weekend which is looking rather warm, most locations
in the 80s well-above normal highs around the low 70s, looking at a
trend of mild days and cool nights. Some uncertainty as to whether
the upstream pattern reloads (preferred W CONUS troughing) acting to
buckle colder air n. Aside, there's the possibility the following
weekend that we could see our first shot of cool canadian air right
on time with the start of autumn. Continued preference of ensembles
given pattern uncertainty and recent deterministic adjustments to
wetter outcomes through next week.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
